I'm back home from another work day in Nanaimo. Seeing as I've been such a good girl lately I thought that a few 'little' special treats were in order! These are the secret special treats that are smuggled in when nobody's looking because.. I've probably gone over my nonexistant budget as it is! These purchases will be blamed on Victoria at Crafty Capers! All she has to do is post on her blog what's new in the store and I turn into someone on par with a heroine junkie!! Ever have those days when you swear you're 'just going to look??!!' I have them all the time.
So... Today I picked up another BIG and Juicy stamp pad in 'Soothing Sunset.' It's gorgeeeeeous! When I arrived home I put everyone's appetite on hold and ran into my little room and started brayering. WooHoo! Loved it! Once I had that done I picked out a stamp that was wide enough for my paper and voila! There you have it! Simple and I think it looks pretty kewl. There are no embellishments other than Stickles on this card. The colours are so bright and strong that the patterned paper I had hoped to use made it look like the I-5 during a nuclear evacuation. The top stamped image is popped up. Here's a closeup so you can see where I put the Stickles... They show up much better in person. Actually the colours are all quite bright and really don't show as well as I had hoped due to my terrible photographic skills on automatic!
